Overview:

Finding it difficult to keep up with the growth in unstructured data? Looking for a cost-effective high capacity storage option? With the 6 Gb/s SAS HP D6000 Disk Enclosure, HP extends and redefines direct-attached storage for BladeSystem servers, combining the simplicity and cost effectiveness of direct-attached storage without sacrificing flexibility or performance. Use the D6000 as part of a straightforward in-rack 6 Gb/s SAS implementation that delivers high-density, low-cost external zoned direct attach storage for HP BladeSystem and ProLiant servers. The D6000 helps you easily configure storage on the fly with easy-to-use management software.

Features and Benefits:

High-density, Low-cost External SAS Storage for BladeSystem Servers

  • The 6 Gb/s SAS D6000 is designed with two pull-out disk drawers to support hot plug large form factor SAS or SAS MDL drives in just 5U of rack space for customers requiring dense storage option with lowest acquisition cost that optimizes cost per U.
  • The simplicity of an in-rack storage solution eliminates expense and complexity from the storage architecture; just a Smart Array P721m Controller in the blade server, 6 Gb/s SAS BL switches in the blade enclosure connected to up to six D6000.
  • Supports up to six D6000 from a single BladeSystem enclosure providing up to 1260 TB of in-rack storage for customers requiring high-density, low-cost storage.

Build Local Storage on the fly for BladeSystem Servers

  • Use the management software of the 6 Gb/s SAS BL switch to group D6000 drives and assign them to individual blade servers. These drives now appear as local storage to that server.
  • With D6000 zoned direct attach capabilities server administrators can build local storage on the fly according to their configuration requirements.
  • Just add additional drives to the D6000 and zone to a newly deployed blade server, or add capacity to the zone of an existing blade server configuration. No need for complex configuration or rewiring.

High Performance 6 Gb/s SAS Connectivity to External Storage

  • 6 Gb/s host connectivity enables higher performance, eases configuration/deployment and broadens supported features of an D6000 using HP Smart Array P721m controller and 6 Gb/s SAS BL switches.
  • With the D6000, applications and storage are installed in the same rack. Latency is reduced as data does not travel over large distances.
  • A Smart Array P721m Controller installed in the blade server provides 2GB flash-backed write cache (FBWC).
